Wants and Needs
If you attended the Paleo Challenge Meeting on Saturday or are just a member trying to improve yourself, can you evaluate the difference between wants and needs? Anytime I’ve ever closed out any kind of Paleo discussion with anyone, I always get countless, “what about…”, “I like to…”, “is it ok if…” I get it. We all NEED things to keep us moving through the day. Just evaluate the difference between your wants and needs.
If you’ve never gone Paleo before this is an enormous challenge for you. So, evaluate what you have been eating and decide what are your wants and needs in the dietary department. Do you need bread and cheese or do you want it? Is it going to help you get closer to your goal or make it that much more difficult? Can you survive the day without it? I get all of these questions, and I’ve dealt with them myself. Personally, I’d like to think you can find enough happiness in other outlets in life besides eating.
How much time in a day do you spend eating? Probably less than an hour of actual consumption. How much time of the day do you spend paying for eating all the things that spike your insulin levels and add fat to your body? If you’re a chronic overeater, most likely, the answer is all day. I enjoy going out to eat as much as anyone, and I enjoy eating food that I know is bad for me as much as anyone. Note: EVERYONE ENJOYS THE TASTE OF UNHEALTHY FOOD!! The real question is do you have enough willpower to decide that it’s probably not the best call for you?
